Brownhill anticipates reaction at Leeds

Josh Brownhill says he expects "a good showing" from City as they look to get back to winning ways against Leeds United this weekend.

Leeds are without a win in their last eight outings, while City will be hoping for fighting spirit after slipping to a 3-3 draw at home to Sunderland last weekend.

The Robins travel to Elland Road on Sunday (February 18th, 4.30pm kick-off) in the Sky Bet Championship.

'PLAY-OFFS ARE IN OUR HANDS'

Brownhill said: "I think after the game we were disappointed about the result. There was nothing we could do about that so we came in the next day and focussed on the the Leeds game.

"We're in a great position, the play-offs are in our hands, the mood has been good, as has training this week."

Midfielder Brownhill, who played right-back against the Black Cats, continued: "I played there a couple of times last season, I've played wing-back a couple of times this season too so it was different but I enjoyed it. 

"As long as I'm playing, I will enjoy myself. It was tough getting my bearings when receiving the ball but overall I was happy."

CITY SEEKING REVENGE

"Sunday is a chance for us to put on a good performance at their place. At Ashton Gate it wasn't the best game (3-0 defeat) from our point of view.

"It's in the back of our heads and we want the three points when we travel to Elland Road this weekend.

"[Recently] we've not had the results we would have liked, or the performances either but overall the season has been good and everybody still has the energy and quality. We will put out a good show this weekend and hopefully we can get the three points.

DUE A GOAL

Brownhill has averaged one goal every 12 games this season although it is 15 matches since his winning wonder-goal against Hull City. His trio of strikes have all come away from home too, so is he feeling lucky ahead of the weekend's trip to Elland Road?

"It's a bit frustrating for me scoring away from home, I've not scored many home goals in my career," he said.

"But I'll take a goal wherever it comes and if I'm due a goal this weekend then that will be great. But its more about the points."
